Interview with Tyler Colins, Author of Forever Poi

Hello,

Today’s interview is with Tyler Colins, author of Forever Poi.

Please enjoy.

Best,

-Vincent Lowry

Interview:

1)    What is your author name and in what state do you live (or country if not in the US)?

My author name is Tyler Colins and currently I reside in Canada (Toronto, to be exact), but my aim/wish/desire/plan/intention/dream is to live in the great U.S. of A.  🙂

 

2)    What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre?

My latest book is Forever Poi, which is the fourth in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series.  The mysteries fall in the cozy realm—with grit.

 

3)    What is the book about?

The three female private eyes—JJ, Rey, and Linda—set out to determine who torched two Chinatown art galleries (and left a couple of bodies in the rubble).  They soon discover there are a sundry of potential culprits … with dark histories and not-so-nice secrets.

 

4)    Where did you come up with the idea?

I had written a TV script (never sold) years ago about an insurance adjuster who solves mysteries/murders.  Instead of letting it collect dust in a drawer, I thought, hmmm, why not take some of the scenes and create a “case” for the TTIA gals to solve?

 

5)    How long did it take you to write it?

A year and some (I have a full-time job and Mom-care, so finding time to write can prove challenging).

 

6)    Did you learn anything from the project?

I did in terms of the research component—about insurance, arson, and the art world.  I also “learned” that I really want to do this full-time.

 

7)    Do you have an author website and/or blog? How about a book video?

My blog is A Writers Grab-Bag – https://thewritersgrabbag.com.

 

8)    Do you have any success tips to pass on to fellow authors? How about any great editors/cover artists?

Success tips?  Hmmm.  I think the most important thing is to keep the faith—do what you love and let that passion guide you.  There are so many ways to promote yourself now: blog tours, for example, are an amazing way to get your book seen by different people.  I’d also suggest joining different author communities; there are some good (supportive) ones on Facebook.

Editors?  LOL  Currently, I edit 2-3 books for a publisher, so I’m biased (coz I think I’m pretty good).  Because my books are with a publisher, I no longer have to worry about covers or finding an artist to do them.  I used to have one, but she’s no longer in the business, so I can’t provide her name.  For those in the market for a cover artist, I suggest looking at books to start. Get an idea of what you want.  Reach out to the author for a name and/or advice (they’re quite accessible and many are very happy to help).

 

9)    What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors and reviewing their work?

I love mysteries, of course, but intrigue makes for enjoyable escapism, too.  I would definitely read new authors and happily do the odd review (given time constraints).

 

10) What is your favorite book of all time and why?

I have a lot of favorites . . . hmmm . . . today, I’m going to go with To Kill a Mockingbird.  It’s a wonderful book that pulls you into another time and place.  The twists and turns, and believable (well-crafted) characters make for an extraordinary read.

 

11) Fun Question: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?

I used to have cats.  I love animals!!!  Right now, given Mom-care, it’s not doable.  One day, though, I’d like to have a potbellied pig.

 

12) Fun Question 2: Do you own an electronic reading device? If so, what kind and how do you like it?

I don’t.  LOL   You know, I love books—the feel and smell of them.  Turning pages is pleasurable.  I guess that makes me rather “old school”.  Ah well.  So be it. 🙂

Interview with Kaitlynzq, Author of Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu

Audio Set_Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu audio set

Hello,

Today’s interview is with Kaitlynzq, Author of Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu.

Please enjoy!

Best,

-Vincent Lowry

 

Interview:

Emblem Art_giving tree

1) What is your author name and in what state do you live (or country if not in the US)?

My author name is my first name, Kaitlynzq, and I currently live in northern California, and have a love for soft, gentle breezes and calm climates.  Trees, flowers, the ocean, and mountains are all extremely important to me with how I connect.

 

 

2) What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre?

My writing forms into books that are connected as a set of interconnected stories with elements from each story that interweave in one another as heart’s wave, heart’s song, heart’s breath.  Characters with the same feelings, needs, dreams, desires while each book holds its own unique form.  Instead of a chronological set, the books included in a series are inter-connected, meaning interior connected.

 

My first series, Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu includes Ancient Script of Lovecontu audio poem, Legend of Song de Light audio book, Legend of Song de Light audio play, and Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu audio set.

 

With interior poetic stanzas hinted at in Legend of Song de Light that bloom into full poems in Ancient Script of Lovecontu to then step within notes of love within Legend of Song de Light, as a “Yes, …, I, …, will meet you tonight.”

 

And, all three of these books are held gently in my book Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu audio set, and written with poetic prose and touches of romance.

 

 

3) What is the book about?

Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu audio set holds the internal vocabulary of a character’s heart, that beautiful space of needs, desires, dreams, feelings, with the undercurrent of the depth of lovecontu a continual rhythm within a heart.

 

Lovecontu touches as flowers, sounds of a pink glow, song of radiant chords, and continues within the series of interconnected stories Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu.

 

For the vocal synopsis of this audio set, and more about the series, the following link will guide you to the playlist on my audio streams for Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu

 

https://soundcloud.com/kaitlynzq/sets/lovecontu-song-de-light-lovecontu-series

 

 

4) Where did you come up with the idea?

Within my books, I include delicate symmetry of colors, music, and flowers.  Sometimes as symbolic metaphors, and other times as literal connections, within a character’s experiences that at times, link with another character’s experience.  Moment by moment, layer by layer, that become a story.

 

My inspirations come from the interior spaces within my heart, within other people, and within precious natural elements like the layers inside of a tree.  And, in the night time depths of my heart the idea for this series continued to unfold to join in the daylight hours to reveal even more as I wrote.

 

 

5) How long did it take you to write it?

Each book is unique, and typically begin to form well before I put pen to paper. Once I do begin to write what my imagination holds, it takes about one to two years.

 

 

6) Do you have an author website and/or blog?

kaitlynzq.com

kaitlynzq.boutique

 

blog & audio streams newsletter signup form:  http://eepurl.com/dN-AFj

 

 

7) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors and reviewing their work?

I love adult literary fiction, poetry and romance, and these are the same genres that I write in.  New authors are as wonderful as any author along the spectrum of their life and artistry.

 

I don’t review authors’ work; however, I have created a collective book box subscription that focuses on the beautiful depths of poetry, and highlights the full color wheel of poets.  If any poets are interested in being included in one of the editions for hearts’ poetry, more information is available here  kaitlynzq.com/poets-center

 

I would be honored to have a conversation with you about the opportunities to include you in hearts’ poetry…

 

a special extension and collection of the artistry of poets

each of their heart’s natural language, imagination’s dance

their words stream into sounds of lyrical compositions that form the stanzas

lines and notes that connect together into poems as their unique

heart’s wave, heart’s song, heart’s breath

heart’s breath, heart’s song, heart’s wave

and are woven into each month’s hearts’ poetry

 

 

8) Fun Question: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?

I don’t have a pet; however, I connect with many animals…butterflies gentle way they float in the air, snow leopard and their soft, intense depth of their eyes, horses and their elegant way, bigfin reef squid and its beautiful way of bioluminescence in the sea, a hummingbird’s dance, eagle’s long wingspan, axolotl and their kind expression, little blue penguin’s precious tenderness, and my list goes on and on.

 

And, my love of these precious beings are part of something that I’ve designed called giving tree, where 25% of sales goes to a charity within books, theatre, radio and nature.  For more information about this community sharing extension, and to synchronize your purchase with the current month’s giving tree moments, please visit these pages

Interview with Damian Maximus, Author of Barry the Rogue Baguettiere

Good evening,

Today’s interview is with Damian Maximus, author of Barry the Rogue Baguettiere.

Please enjoy!

Best,

-Vincent Lowry

Interview:

1) What is your author name and in what state do you live (or country if
not in the US)?

My name is Damian Maximus. I currently live in a little village in
southern England.

2) What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre?

My newest book is called Barry the Rogue Baguettiere: and other strange tales from the city of Dondolon. Just Barry the Rogue Baguettiere for short. It’s a three-way split between comedy, action, and thriller.

3) What is the book about?

The book is about a ruthless – ‘ruthless’ – bacon thief in the fictional
town of Dondolon and it follows his escapades as he is hunted by the
authorities.

4) Where did you come up with the idea?

The idea of a comical bacon thief was created years ago when I wrote a mock review and complained about a lack of bacon in my chicken and bacon sandwich. Then about a year ago it was suggested to me that I expand upon the idea. And thus Barry was birthed.

The novel is actually written in partnership with an Instagram story along the same vein where the Instagrammer tries to track down Barry the Rogue Baguettiere. The stories can be read together or separately. Neither requires the other to make sense. The Instagram story can be found at @huntingforbarry.

5) How long did it take you to write it?

Without edits, about six months. With edits, about nine months.

6) Did you learn anything from the project?

Ya. Alliterations are fun.

The book was created to be a break from the seriousness of literature. It was designed to be fun, like those books you read as a kid. It’s a kids’ book for adults. And I learnt that sometimes you have to throw out the rulebook when it comes to techniques you can and can’t use. Alliterate too much. Rhyme. Make up words if it makes sense to (Baguettiere is made up). Have fun.

7) Do you have an author website and/or blog? How about a book video?

I have a website: www.damianmaximus.com; and an Instagram account:
@Damian_Maximus.

8) Do you have any success tips to pass on to fellow authors? How about
any great editors/cover artists?

Read the boring books about grammar and about literary techniques. Come up with your own opinions on grammatical techniques. Learn about merism and diacopes and zeugmas. Discover why we remember ‘Bond, James Bond’ or ‘get busy living, or get busy dying’.

Everyone knows Eats, Shoots & Leaves, by Lynne Truss. Another is Making a Point by David Crystal. The Elements of Eloquence by Mark Forsyth is good for those literary techniques.

As far as choosing an editor or cover artist, I’d say just shop around. Find someone honest and constructive. Also, give the editing and designing a go yourself. You won’t be as good, but you’ll learn a ton (just make sure you still go with a professional for the final version).

9) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors
and reviewing their work?

I am definitely open to reading new authors and reviewing their work. I like to jump around genres and I’m a sucker for the classics. There’s a reason they’ve survived the test of time and I can learn so much from them. But I also know that certain modern authors will in the future be considered classics.

I don’t really do horror though. There are some good horror books out there, it’s just not a genre I’ve moved towards.

10) What is your favorite book of all time and why?

It’s cliché but The Great Gatsby. It isn’t the best book ever but my goodness can Fitzgerald throw down a line. When I find myself rereading sentences over and over again I know it’s a good book.

Either that or The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. It’s just incredible. The London theatre production of it is amazing too.

11) Fun Question: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?

A brown and white terrier mutt named Watson (from Sherlock Holmes). He’s a rescue dog, has tons of energy, and sometimes prances around the forest like a deer. He’s hilarious.

12) Fun Question 2: Do you own an electronic reading device? If so, what
kind and how do you like it?

Remember those Nooks that were the competitors to the Kindle? No, well that’s ok. I have one of those. All it does is store books but that’s all I need it to do. None of this fancy modern stuff.

Interview with George Stratford, Author of I Spy Bletchley Park

Hello,

Today’s interview is with George Stratford, author of I Spy Bletchley Park.

Please enjoy!

Best,

-Vincent Lowry

Interview:

1) What is your author name and in what state do you live (or country if not in the US)?

I publish novels under my own name of George Stratford, and I live in the south coast holiday resort of Bournemouth, England.

 

2) What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre?

Currently, I am more than halfway through writing a new murder thriller set in the popular music world of 1970s London, but my most recently published novel is an historical adventure/thriller titled, I Spy Bletchley Park. This has been excellently received and reviewed here in the UK.

 

3) What is the book about?
This story is set in the years leading up to and during WWII. Embittered by the government’s seizure of her father’s large estate, Lady Margaret Pugh is recruited as a spy by Hermann Goering during the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games. With her former estate bordering the town of Bletchley, once war is declared, the strange comings and goings at the nearby Park mansion gradually attract her attention. In an attempt to discover more, she deliberately befriends a young working-class WAAF (Women’s Auxiliary Air Force) who is stationed at BP as a Morse Code Receiver.
The girl is Betty Hall, especially chosen for her ability to receive and accurately type high-speed messages. Before joining the WAAFs, she was also a budding child prodigy as a classical pianist. Her friendship with Lady Margaret is noted by Naval Intelligence, who are already beginning to suspect the aristocrat of spying on the country’s most secret establishment. A shocked and apprehensive Betty is recruited to assist them. Completely untrained for this kind of counter-espionage work, she can only do her best and hope.

Before long, the two women inevitably clash, and a desperate Betty finds herself as the only person in a position to save Bletchley Park from complete destruction.

 

4) Where did you come up with the idea?

My late mother was a WAAF stationed at BP for two years during WWII, and subsequently at one of the vital Y listening stations. Like so many others, she never breathed a single word of this until the 1980s when the secret had already become common public knowledge.

I wanted to write a fictional tribute to Mum. The codebreakers themselves have (rightly so) had volumes of both fictional and factual stuff written about them, but how about an adventure story featuring one of the less acknowledged workers in a heroic role? That was my reasoning at the start of things. After that, it was quite a logical move to create a spy who would place Bletchley Park in great danger. And better still, a female one with an aristocratic background in complete contrast to Betty’s south London working-class upbringing. Once Lady Margaret had been created, all the other pieces began to fall naturally into place.

 

5) How long did it take you to write it?

The amount of research required for this story was enormous, so if you include that, the whole process took me just about a year.

Spending time at the current Bletchley Park site was of course a mandatory requirement, and whilst there I was fortunate enough to become friends with one of the dedicated volunteer workers who do so much to enhance the centre’s visitor experience. John Bladen was a mine of invaluable information. Numerous times throughout the course of that year I needed to get back to him with some question or other on historical or technical detail, and he was always only to happy to help. I owe John a lot. So here’s another great big thank you, mate.

 

6) Did you learn anything from the project?

I suspect that you mean aside from the obvious mass of information during research that amongst many other things took in: the 1929 Stock Market crash; British politics of that era; the1936 Berlin Olympics, especially the equestrian events; and a host of personal details concerning Hermann Goering.

What I did learn was to totally rubbish the theory that females can’t keep a secret. At one time or another during the course of WWII, approximately eight thousand women (mostly WAAFs and WRENs) worked at Bletchley Park. Just like my own mother, not a single one of them ever sought to break the Official Secrets Act that they had all signed. Forty years were to pass before they were free to talk about their part in something that was truly amazing. How’s that for keeping Mum?

 

7) Do you have an author website and/or blog? How about a book video?

Please do come and visit my website at georgestratford.com . Amongst other stuff, you can read an extract from I Spy Bletchley Park in which Lady Margaret is first introduced to Hermann Goering by a Nazi loving former boyfriend. This extract is not available to read anywhere else. There is also lots of info here about my other novels, together with a middle grade children’s story set in the Philippines, and a memoir of my time when I went from being an out of work no-hoper to an award-winning copywriter at the world’s most famous advertising agency, Saatchi & Saatchi. Mad Men? More of a Mad Ride, I’d say.

 

8) Do you have any success tips to pass on to fellow authors? How about any great editors/cover artists?

The best tip I can pass on is always use the ‘Read Aloud’ function to check your manuscript. With anything that you have written yourself, the eye so very often will read what it is anticipating seeing rather than what it actually there on the page.

Being an editor myself who has worked very closely with best-selling fantasy author Brian D Anderson on fourteen of his novels, including all of The Godling Chronicles and the Dragonvein series, I know how well this simple trick can work.

 As for cover designers, I’ve always found Lou Harper to be efficient, speedy, and very reasonably priced.

 

9) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors and reviewing their work?

 Adventure stories and thrillers, sometimes with an historical background in the way Ken Follett does them, are my most preferred reads. I’ve also thoroughly enjoyed quite a bit of Stephen King’s work, especially the Mr Mercedes (Finders Keepers) trilogy.

Thanks to my work with Brian, I am now also rather more open to some kinds of fantasy work as well.

I always try to set aside at least half an hour a day (usually just before hitting the pillow) to read a new book. Of course I am open to new authors, and am very happy to post a positive review when I feel it is deserved. The only problem is, if I find that I can’t get on with a book, I would rather not post anything at all than be destructive. Why stamp on something when others might genuinely enjoy it?

 

10) What is your favorite book of all time and why?

 My thesaurus: Without it, where would I be when I’m stuck for the right word?

 

11) Fun Question: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?

No pets as such, although I do have a make-believe Dobermann posted outside my door to keep away unwanted visitors when I’m on a writing roll.

 

12) Fun Question 2: Do you own an electronic reading device? If so, what kind and how do you like it?

Yup, I’ve got what might be termed as a pretty ancient kindle that still gets used a fair bit. The truth is though, I honestly prefer the feel of a proper book in my hand. It’s also so much easier to flip quickly back to check on something with physical pages. You know, when a character who we haven’t seen for several chapters suddenly appears again and you need reminding of who exactly they are. This is especially true if you find you only have time to read in small daily bites the way I tend to do.

Interview with Clifford Browder, Author of The Eye That Never Sleeps

Hello,

Today’s interview is with Clifford Browder, author of The Eye That Never Sleeps.

Please enjoy.

Best,

-Vincent Lowry

1) What is your author name and in what state do you live (or
country if not in the US)?
Clifford Browder New York
2) What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre?
The Eye That Never Sleeps historical novel
3) What is the book about?
The ambiguous friendship of a dapper young bank robber with the
sober, churchgoing private detective hired by the banks to
apprehend him.
4) Where did you come up with the idea?
I read about a real bank robber in nineteenth-century New York
City who made his way into high social circles, until he was
exposed and arrested.
5) How long did it take you to write it?
No idea. But once I started, it just flowed out.
6) Did you learn anything from the project?
The intriguing ambiguities of opposites attract. These two
opposites, who have to be enemies, really develop a friendship.
7) Do you have an author website and/or blog? How about a book
video?
My blog: No Place for Normal: New York. Weekly posts about
anything and everything New York, past and present. It has given
me two nonfiction titles, with a third on the way. No website,
though I may create one. No book video. Tech-wise, I’m an
ignoramus.

 

8) Do you have any success tips to pass on to fellow authors?
How about any great editors/cover artists?
For first-time authors: Brace yourself for an inevitable bad review
or two; we all get them. Also, don’t expect your friends to buy your
book; some will, some won’t. Remember: they haven’t sign a
contract to do so.
9) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new
authors and reviewing their work?

I read more nonfiction than fiction, and especially like history. Not
much time for new authors, though occasionally I review them.

10) What is your favorite book of all time and why?
A tough question. Can’t cite just one. The King James version of
the Bible is a runner up; the poetry overwhelms me. Maybe
Joyce’s Ulysses, which I can reread endlessly; its mastery of style
and character are brilliant. In poetry, Ginsberg’s Howl and
Rimbaud’s Bateau Ivre (not in translation) are favorites, plus the
first two books of Milton’s Paradise Lost. Early Wordsworth holds
up well, as does T.S. Eliot’s Hollow Men. I’m all over the place,
aren’t I? Apologies.

11) Fun Question: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?
Sorry, no pets.
12) Fun Question 2: Do you own an electronic reading
device? If so, what kind and how do you like it?
Sorry, no such device. I keep free of gadgets as much as I can.

Interview with Susana Imaginario, Author of Wyrd Gods

Hello,

Today’s interview is with Susana Imaginario, author of Wyrd Gods.

You can find it below.

Thanks,

-Vincent Lowry

 

Interview:

1) What is your author name and in what state do you live (or country if not in the US)?

Susana Imaginário. I live in Ireland.

2) What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre?

Wyrd Gods is a (grim)dark fantasy with hints of satire and mystery.

3) What is the book about?

It’s about falling from grace and the thin line between selfishness and self preservation. How limited each individual’s perspective is and the consequences of assumptions and miscommunication. It’s about predation and redemption.

4) Where did you come up with the idea?

I saw this ancient yew tree in an old graveyard, all gnarled and hollow amongst the faded gravestones, and tried to imagine how it all would have looked like when the tree was young. This led to a series of incomplete stories about time travelling through trees. I liked the concept, but failed to make it work, so eventually I used the plot of another unfinished novel written years before that, a sort of Clash of the Titans set in Niflheim and (after many drafts, revisions, edits, tears and curses) Timelessness was born.

5) How long did it take you to write it?

Three years altogether. I had to stop and restart several times for ‘real’ life always takes priority.

6) Did you learn anything from the project?

So much! I’m still learning. Not just about writing and publishing but about myself and those around me. It has been a life-changing experience.

7) Do you have an author website and/or blog? How about a book video?

I have the simplest website. For now.

http://www.susanaimaginario.com

8) Do you have any success tips to pass on to fellow authors? How about any great editors/cover artists?

Just write. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Learn from them, fix them, and then write some more. Listen to the advice of everyone who seems to want to help you but don’t believe everything you’re told and don’t try to please them all either. You’ll fail. At the end of the day, you’re the one who has to take responsibility for your work, not them, so you better be proud of it (yes, that also includes the mistakes).

The book was edited by Lisa Gilliam (https://www.lisagilliam.com) and the cover designed by Design for Writers https://www.designforwriters.com

9) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors and reviewing their work?

Fantasy, scifi and historical fiction are my favourite genres, but I’m always up for reading anything new and different. And sure, I’ll be happy to review.

10) What is your favorite book of all time and why?

The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa. It’s a flawed and incomplete masterpiece. I find it soothing. It’s not the sort of book to read through in one go, but to keep on your nightstand instead and randomly open when there’s no one to talk to. A must have for every introvert writer.

11) Fun Question: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?

Yes, I have a very spoiled Portuguese Water Dog named Locke.

12) Fun Question 2: Do you own an electronic reading device? If so, what kind and how do you like it?

My old fourth generation Kindle is still my favourite device. I don’t like the glare of any of the new ones (including paperwhite).
